Health Tip

RESILIENCE according to The Mayo Clinic:
“Resilience means being able to adapt to life’s misfortunes and setbacks.”

  1. Nervous System Fawn response
  2. Nervous System Freeze response
  3. Nervous System Flight response
  4. Nervous System Fight response

Bone broth – comfort food, health support, base for soups and stews…there are so many reasons to incorporate this into our diet as often as possible!

Many stores offer pre-made options for this, and there are times when purchasing this is a great choice!  Be aware, bone broth is NOT chicken stock – typical stock is made from chicken flavoring and other seasoning, rather than from cooking bones in water to leach the nutrients.

For those who are looking to save a little money or enjoy cooking from scratch, making bone broth can be quite easy!

The essentials needed to make bone broth include:

  • Beef, chicken, pork and/or fish bones – those with some cartilage attached are best such as joints or even chicken feet, as these provide even more healing gelatin.
  • Water
  • Large pot, crock pot or Instant pot

Additional ingredients that can add some flavor and nutrient density include:

  • Onions or leeks (1 small onion or 2-3 leeks sliced) and carrots (1 large cut into a few pieces)
  • Salt (or some other form of savory seasoning)
  • Get creative – you can also add mushrooms, celery, garlic, other herbs…make it according to your taste!

Place bones in a large 6-8 quart pot first, along with larger ingredients.

Place enough water to cover the bones and allow for a boil in the pot. That often means no more than 2/3-3/4 full. If cooking over the stove or in the crockpot, it is best to keep at a simmer for at least 8-10 hours, up to 24 hours or more to get as much nutrient density out of the bones. This is where the Instant Pot is a life saver – often 2-3 hours will provide a nice broth.

Optimally the finished product will “set” when placed in the fridge, much like a thin jello – that is an indication that you’ve successfully gathered those incredible nutrients from the bones.

Below are two other resources with further descriptions and recipes for Bone Broth from amazingly talented women! Enjoy!!
